Rename SSL VPN profile

Every downloaded SSLVPN profile is named "username__ssl_vpn_config.exe" and there is no possibility to change this globally. So if you import different profiles with the same username (as we do this for our technicians with different customers) you can't differ which profile is for a specific customer.

Please provide a ability to change this or change the naming convention to SG like.

    Not sure why the behavior of this needed to change between UTM 9 and XG. It really just feels like it was totally overlooked, but for any users that need to manage multiple VPN connections it at the very least looks messy and at worst is frustrating and confusing. Manually renaming the connection in the ProgramFiles directory isn't an actual solution for end users who don't have rights to do that.

    This should be a very minor fix but would improve VPN usability greatly.

    We desperately need this feature. Deploying customer environments in Azure and each one is using a separate XG Firewall. Our team members need to connect to manage the various environments and having to have them manually rename the connections is not a solution, it's a band-aid. Please give us the option to customize the name or make it use username@hostname[IP] like the UTM.

    I know this is possible, but thats not quite a nice solution, when you have lots of different users, who have to do so.

    (for windows) look in C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\Sophos SSL VPN Client\config - the config is just a text file. If you rename one, you can then install another one over the top without losing it (or just download the .ovpn file and put it in the same directory.
